    I'm in my early twenties, and have been having ideation for hmm... 2 years strongly, but off and on since I was around 15. Ed, etc.
    However I'm also a 'professional' and feel incredibly ashamed/alone. It's a tricky position to be in because I know many people working within all the formal help resources where I live! I'm also incredibly worried this will get traced somehow by someone I know/work with... then again it's funny I think most people have something, even if they don't talk about it.
    I'm staying alive for my parents and my dog; having said that I feel worse about it because I can't even manage to look after my dog or be a particularly wonderful daughter.
    That's pretty much it. I joined both as a support network for myself, but also hopefully to support others. Trying to make a positive out of this mess!
    Thank you!

    Hi and welcome...I am also a professional and struggled with the same difficulties, but decided that I had to come first, and surprisingly, whoever knew I got help, supported me...please get what you need first...maybe private treatment would keep you away from any of the other issues...welcome again and please continue to share with us what is going on...big hugs, J
